This book provides a wealth of practical guidance on building and painting realistic model naval ships aimed at those who are new to this hobby through to the experienced modeller. An in-depth look at the creation of four models is included: the Type 45 destroyer HMS Daring (Dragon), the pre-war aircraft carrier USS Wasp (Aoshima), the River-class frigate HMS Nadder (Starling Models) and the 'pocket battleship' Admiral Graf Spee (Academy). With a focus on the popular kit scales of 1/700 and 1/350 in the waterline style, this book demonstrates the techniques used in building model ships, from the basic to the more complex, larger-scale models requiring many differing skills. There are chapters on the fundamentals such as building resin kits, painting and weathering, rigging and creating a water effect. It provides guidance on more advanced techniques such as the use of photo-etched parts and creating rough-water effects. Finally, it is packed with helpful tips and finishing touches, such as making flags and how to take professional-standard photographs of your completed model.

MEDIA REVIEWS
While I have concentrated on modelling military vehicles and aircraft in over 55 years of modelling, I have always built the occasional ship, especially in 1/700. So while I am familiar with many aspects of modelling, I found a lot of useful tips and ideas in here which I hadn't known or thought of before, so whether you are a beginner or more experienced naval ship modeller, there is plenty to learn in here. Very happy to recommend this one. -- Robin Buckland * Military Model Scene *
